A classic cocktail that never grows old.

You can use either white or red cranberry juice when making the drink; I prefer Ocean Spray.


  • 2 ounces citrus vodka
  • 4 ounces white or red cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • Frozen red or green grapes, for garnish


Shake the vodka, cranberry juice, and lime juice together well in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a grape.

Cosmopolitan Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cosmopolitan Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
